What Are The Dangers Of Dryer Vent Clogs?
Dryer Vent Cleaning Simpsonville recommends single families with no pets have their dryer vents cleaned at least once a year. For families of five people or families with two or more pets we recommend having it done every six to nine months. This is because the more people or pets you have, the more messes happen. More mess means more laundry being done. When you do more laundry which causes lint and debris to collect in your vent. Mold and mildew also collect in your dryer vent since the dryer is absorbing the wetness from your clothes. All of the debris that collects in the vent leaves you and your family susceptible to allergies. Mold and mildew can cause irritation to the lungs. It can also cause your family or self to become ill.
Having a Dryer Vent Cleaning Simpsonville regular service prevents your risk of a vent fire. Lint is highly flammable. When clogs occur then there’s nowhere for the lint and debris to escape. The smallest spark can cause lint to ignite resulting in a home or building fire. Would you happen to have a gas powered dryer? If so, did you know this emits carbon monoxide? Having a proper cleaning reduces the risk of carbon monoxide from building up. Carbon monoxide is an odorless, poisonous gas that is heavier than air. This causes it to sink to the floor. The only way to tell if you have a buildup of carbon monoxide is by having a detector pointed toward the floor.
Having clogs prevents the carbon monoxide from being able to escape which causes the buildup. This can be extremely dangerous and result in hospital stays or in the worse case, fatal poisoning. Dryer Vent Cleaning Simpsonville wants to prevent these terrible things from occurring. Allergies, potential fire and potential carbon monoxide poisoning are the main risks.
